Our Story

Pacific Crossroads Church began as a prayer group and Bible study on the Westside of Los Angeles in 1999. In 2006, while flourishing and growing even without official leadership, Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City invested in Pacific Crossroads in the hope that it could become a gospel-centered resource church to love and serve the city of Los Angeles.

It was then that Rankin Wilbourne became the pastor of Pacific Crossroads, to “re-plant” the church. Since that time, the church has continued to see growth that has allowed it to begin a series of new church plants, with the first in the Pasadena region of the San Gabriel Valley. With 90 community groups and hundreds of volunteers serving through Hope for LA, the mercy and justice arm of our church, we continue in the hope of our vision to see lives transformed by God’s power, renewing Los Angeles for Christ.

Leadership

Throughout the Bible, God sets apart leaders to care for and serve His people, yet leadership in the Bible is distinctively different. Leaders in the church are called to serve, under God, to equip and build up others (Ephesians 4:11-12). The Bible lays out two main offices of leadership in the local church: elders and deacons.

Elders

The biblical picture of elders is found in 1 Timothy 3, Acts 20, and Titus 1. At Pacific Crossroads, elders are trained to see themselves primarily as shepherds (1 Peter 5) who lead, feed, know, and protect those entrusted to their care.

Deacons

The biblical picture of deacons is found in Acts 6 and 1 Timothy 3. The title deacon comes from the Greek word for “servant.” Deacons at Pacific Crossroads serve the church in a variety of capacities. They assist the elders of the church in diverse areas such as the Finance Team, Operations, Mercy Ministry, and Pastoral Care.

“Whoever would be great among you must be your servant, and whoever would be first among you must be slave of all. For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many.”

(Mark 10:42-45)
